Gregg Louis was born in St. Louis, Missouri and received his MFA from School of Visual Arts in New York City. His work has been internationally exhibited, and featured in several prominent art journals and blogs. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Working in a wide range of media including photography, text, video, installation, and drawing; Louis's work looks at the blurry line between imagination and reality. Through appropriating objects, images, and/or experiences he utilizes artifice and transforms everyday things into strange and often humorous deviations of their original form. His works playfully question the patterns and perceptions of everyday life.
